A New Set of Blogs for Issue 40!

After a long hiatus, BFR blogs are back! In the lead-up to the publication of BFR Issue 40, we’ll be publishing a blog a week from our staff, editors, and contributors. You’ll see a creative piece describing the well-known arduous writing process, a thought-provoking narrative describing a staff member’s experience with the exclusiveness of the literary community, and a meditation about the ethics of writing trauma from a contributor to the upcoming issue.

We’ll be posting one every Wednesday so stay tuned for more, as well as our upcoming BFR Issue 40 which comes out on May 1st!

Hope to see you then, and safe health during this time,

– Mackhai Nguyen, BFR Editor
